Culture change needed to restore Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
Culture change among Filipinos is needed if the polluted Manila Bay is to be restored and preserved for the long-term, according to Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Roy Cimatu. “If they ask me what is the most difficult part in rehabilitating Manila Bay, I would say it is to change our people’s behavior and attitude,” Cimatu pointed out. However, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) chief said the seeming enthusiasm and willingness of a lot of people to take part in the effort to rehabilitate Manila Bay shows that there is still hope for such change.
